GCS Background Information

This link opens a document explaining how GCS values are determined, and here is another document link which is useful.  This link takes you to a web site dedicated to explaining GCS, and is seemingly an authority on the subject matter.


Snippet 1: A GCS score of 3 due to head trauma is associated with a high mortality rate, and some researchers suggested that there are no chances of survival.

Snippet 2: The GCS is the most common scoring system used to describe the level of consciousness in a person following a traumatic brain injury. Basically, it is used to help gauge the severity of an acute brain injury. The test is simple, reliable, and correlates well with outcome following severe brain injury.  Generally brain injury is classified as:

  • Severe: GCS 8 or less
  • Moderate: GCS 9-12
  • Mild: GCS 13-15
